Prop size for Island Gypsy 44

I wonder if someone can share the information on what props they have on their IG 44 twin engine boats? Many of them seem to be with around 120 hp Lehmans or similar. Mine has twin Volvo Penta TMD40A with 124 hp and 1.91: 1 gear box. Now I am forced to replace the engines, so I am looking for something more suitable lower rpm running diesels compared to current Volvos which run max 3600 rpm. So I will have to change my props too, hopefully for something more suitable to 7 knot cruising speed. It is a full-displacement boat anyhow.
